The pearl of the Indian Ocean, Mozambique boasts 2 500 km (1 550 miles) of pristine beachfront on the mainland, with a string of beautiful and idyllic tropical islands, glittering like jewels in the warm, azure waters of the Indian Ocean. Soft, white sand beaches lined with coconut palms stretch as far as the eye can see. Mozambique has remained an exclusive destination as many of its islands and mainland beaches are isolated and secluded, offering travellers the ultimate escape.
Azure waters, bountiful marine life and idyllic accommodation await those visiting the five islands that make up Mozambique’s Bazaruto Archipelago. The waters that lap the archipelago are filled to the brim with an array of reef fish, sea turtles and game fish. An assortment of endangered marine life have also been documented here such as whale sharks, manta rays, leatherback turtles, humpback whales and the very rare dugong.
Dotted along the Mozambican coastline are 32 idyllic islands that make up the Quirimbas Archipelago. Here, a plethora of marine life, ranging from turtles and dugongs to whales and dolphins, and a thriving coral reef beckon to diving enthusiasts. The magnificent Quirimbas National Park offers nature lovers the opportunity to explore a vast expanse of enchanted forest. The Quirimbas boast enormous cultural and historical value. The islands represent a melting-pot of Portuguese, Arabian and African influences
